Why move to Timaru District for work?

Paula Campbell - Compliance Co-ordinator, Mount Cook Alpine Salmon, Washdyke

Paula Campbell"My husband and I targeted Timaru District because of the career opportunities and for family reasons too.  We moved here two years ago from Hawkes Bay. Murray’s an engineering project manager for Fonterra, and I’m a food technologist so we wanted to live in an area with lots of career opportunities for both of us, and it’s certainly a great area for this.  We love living in Geraldine – the smaller community is just right for our family.
